Default Anyone on Explorer of the Sea 6/22?

Who's going with us on The Explorer of the Seas on 6/22? This is our first cruise. My partner and I are very excited about this. We have no idea what to expect.

Have folks reserved dinning for tables of 2? Should we be worried about having to sit with nasty homophobic middle aged couples from Wichita?

Don't worry about homophobs. My partner and I once sat with a strait couple that I thought might be trouble, they were from Iowa. The man was gengerally a bit dazed by us (after his wife explained the situation to him I'm sure) but she thought we were the best thing since sliced bread. Everything we said she thought was the funniest thing she had ever heard. It was like the time John Waters came to springfield on the Simpsons. We brought a little excitement into boring straight peoples lives.
It may have counted as community service.
Other cruises have been the same, met lots of gay people and many nice straight people. Everyone is there to have a good time and we can liven up a boring table.

Kevin.

When are you going? We are so glad we are taking the plunge and going to on the cruise. Have you done the cruise thing before? While we are not looking to hook up with other couples, far too committed for that, we are wondering if there will be other nice gay men on the ship.

I only got the first and the last photos (the atrium area and ice skating rink) - the were great though! I can't wait.
You said you went on Atlantis? Exactly how gay is it? I am not SUPER gay...don't go to gay clubs. I am a gay professional, not a professional. Would I like it?
Thanks for the pictures!

I think you will like it. There are lots of Doctors,Lawers and we had dinner with people who have been together 50 years. One couple grew up together and were high school class mates its nice for 7days.

I would say some of you are "midwesternphobic." Why the idea that all the middle aged people that live in the Midwest (specifically Wichita and Iowa) are homophobic? I'm surprised that someone who is a member of a group that is on the receiving end of so much prejudice would automatically assume someone was homophobic just because of the part of the country they are from.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I think you will have a great time & find that most people who "cruise" are very accepting - even those from the midwest.

You are absolutely right. I am sorry if I offended you or anyone. I was trying to be funny, but it should not have been at the expense of others.

On my last cruise my table mates were a lesbian doctor and her police woman partner who were with their midwestern sisters and niece, before that I had a large table of very diverse hetero couples, all of whom were great fun. I actually had a far better time with the straight folk. Ask for a large table which will increase the diversity and highten the chances of getting at least a few people you will click with. One of the best things about a cruise can be the people at your table, so I would think that a table for two would lessen the experience for you guys. Also if you feel the need for a dinner for two you can go to the intimate Portofino or go casual in the Windjammer upstairs. Also room service can be great especially if you have a balcony and they offer all the Main Dining room entrees as long as you order during the Main Dining room hours. Hope this helps to put your mind at ease.
